How do I apply for an Indoor Stall?
Vacant stalls are advertised monthly via the Council website and local press. You are advised to visit the Market Hall to view which stall would best suit your business needs.
The next step is to fill in an application form to apply for the vacant stall which will then become a sealed tender. All applications are then opened at 9.00 am on the closing date of that month’s advert. A stall letting committee meeting will be held to decide on successful tender.

To apply for an outdoor stall an "Open Market Application/Registration Form" needs to be completed these are available via the "Apply for a stall link" or direct from the Market Office.
